Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to Spike Lee, 56.

No shortage of good stuff:

1. Nice Seth Masket item mourning InTrade -- but remembering that it wasn't actually all that useful.

2. Jared Bernstein on the health care curve -- more details on what's going on, and whether it will last.

3. The latest (but still necessary) Conor Friedersdorf rant about sane conservatives and the GOP-aligned partisan press.

4. Yes, as long as Jennifer Rubin is out there, we'll have Jennifer Rubin takedowns, and they'll still be useful. This one on Obama and Israel from Emily Hauser is nice.

5. Matt Yglesias is right about the news...except probably not at the state and local levels. At least, that's where worries about news media, technology, economics, and democracy should be directed; the other stuff is in terrific shape.

6. Good point by Ed Kilgore about the states and partisan victories.

7. And Sarah Binder is still tracking the CR on the Senate floor.


  1. Nice to see you linking to Emily Hauser, Jonathan. I've known her for years from her commenting on TNC's blog, she's a smart and insightful writer.

  2. Lots of good stuff today! I loved the InTrade article, bummed it died out before I got a chance to make money on it. And Conor doing his darnedest to get someone anyone on the right to listen, sigh.

  3. We love you, Spike Lee!

    (CNN) - Director Spike Lee issued an apology Wednesday night to a Florida couple who had to leave their home after he retweeted a message that erroneously listed their address as belonging to George Zimmerman.

    "I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address," Lee tweeted. "It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain's In Peace. Justice In Court"

    Lee on Zimmerman: KILL HIM! Oops! I mean ... justice in court ...
